that he talked about on july 26 in london last year, which is the outright monetary transactions where the ecb would buy bonds from the country's in trouble along with the european stability mechanism under certain conditions. in other words, certain conditionality. no, the ecb is not going to put up that conditionality. they have enough as the central bank and no as a supervisor for the banks. and so it will probably be the international monetary fund, but they have not really agreed what kind of conditionality they're going to put up into is going to do it. the lead candidate for this should be spain, but the prime minister of spain told me several months ago, he would only go in to this program f there was no additional conditionality other than what he was taken because he thought he was taking enough in spain. second of all, if the ecb could prove to him that by taking his son that the spreads for the cost of issuing bonds would go down significantly. as you see, nothing has been done there, but what psychologically is of the markets and other this program is there. there really h
. and his speech in london was definitely a discontinuity point. i think he is what -- he impersonates the kind of leadership that we need in europe, someone that is, i would say, multicultural and that has a very clear perception of the global reality. while most of politicians in europe are purely domestic and, therefore, do not fully appreciate that we are competing in a global world. however, mario draghi sits in frankfurt and we need to implement reforms here and italians have to take charge of that, for that. and it's very interesting because you're referring to margaret thatcher in the uk and schroeder in germany. in continental europe, perhaps it is easier for center left coalitions to push forward with structural reforms because they can get the buyin of a larger segment of the population. >> do you think by doing what mario draghi has done he's actually given italy the stability no matter what happens at the election in order to pass through these reforms? he controls the market, in a sense? >> well, that is a very important form of insurance. the results are another one that

, this entire story to me is just unbelievable. the guy that i got to know covering in south korea and london is not even equating to these circumstances that i'm hearing. >> let me ask about something in court. he was crying, he completely broke down today and he did in the first hearing. does his grief seem genuine to you? i know that's a very hard thing to judge but this is a man you know. >> it's hard to get in his head from this far away, not knowing really all the circumstances which i think will continue to be revealed in this sad story. but the guy that i discovered on the track, especially in london where he fought so hard through the arbitration to have a chance to run against able-bodied athletes in the games, is emotional. that's part of what they do. his emotion was joy and again, inspiring to all the people who watched him do what he did. i can't get in his head to know exactly what his emotions would be at this time but obviously, he's overrun with grief and we don't know if that's because he's done something with premeditation or if it was an accident. it's just a tragic story
